APPLY to Timeraiser

2016_Spring_SocialCards_Calls_Toronto Facebook

We are thrilled to announce that OCAD U will again partner with TIMERAISER to support artists, nonprofits and collectors!  

This is an amazing opportunity open to all emerging artists!  If you are a current student, you can submit to the special OCAD U student category (you will be prompted to indicate if your student status as you move through the general application process).  From the work submitted to the student category, a minimum of one artwork will be purchased by TIMERAISER.  (Last year 4 purchases were made from the Photo program, along with numerous other OCAD U students and alumni!)



TIMERAISER buys the artwork from the selected artists.

The public “buys” the artwork with volunteer hours.
Nonprofits get volunteers.

Timeraiser is a volunteer matching fair, a silent art auction, and a night out on the town. The big Timeraiser twist is rather than bid money on artwork, participants bid volunteer hours.  Throughout the evening, participants meet with various non-profit organizations in the room to find available skilled volunteer opportunities that meet their needs. Once matches are made, the bidding can begin. Winning bidders have 12 months to complete their pledge in order to bring the artwork home as a reminder of their goodwill.

 DEADLINE: March 4, 2016

Bio:  Katelyn Gallucci is a Toronto-based artist whose work investigates the dynamics of photography and it’s ability to communicate the immediate and the abstract.

As an experimental photo-based artist, her work often combines objects with analog and digital photography techniques to communicate the relationships and paradoxes that occur with in the medium. Gallucci is interested in how these relationships, such as  (time, light,shadow, and representation), allow us insight into, the social, mental, and physical aspects of human experience.

Her work has been exhibited at, Artscape Youngplace and in alternative spaces.

April HickoxProvenance Unknown

Provenance Unknown brings together seven interlocking bodies of work that explore providence, authorship, and the structures in place for the teaching of art.  This series begins to question how we determine what is “art” … the final product that artists present to the world … what has value in the cultural market … and what remains unseen within the artistic process. Provenance Unknown will be paired with new works by James Gardner.
